Sketch and Color Challenge #83 – More Inspiration

Have you played along with our latest challenge?    Challenge #83 is open through March 3, 2018!

There is a sketch and color combo to choose from, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!  Play along for the change to win a YNS Store gift certificate.

Did you know that YNS Challenges come with 2 chances to win?   Link up your creation for the main challenge and then be sure to share it on Instagram, Splitcoaststampers and/or YNS’ Facebook page for a chance to win our social media challenge.  Scroll on down for all the details.

One random participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, plus if the winner uses YNS products on their creation they will receive an additional $5.00 on their gift certificate.  We also select our favorite creation featuring YNS products from all participants and announce a “Top Pick”.   The random winner and “Top Pick” will be announced on the YNS blog the Sunday following the challenge close.   Link up a picture of your creation from your blog, gallery, etc. at the bottom of this post and you will be entered to win.

PLUS…if you are using YNS products on your creation why don’t you take the YNS Social Media challenge too?! You don’t need to create a different project, simply add your Challenge #83 entries to IG, SCS or FB.  Check out all the details in the rules at the bottom.
